Air France diverts Rio-Paris flight over faulty engine

An Air France airliner heading from Rio to Paris was forced to make an emergency landing Friday in Casablanca due to damage to one of its two engines, the company said.

A spokeswoman said the aircraft, which had left Brazil's southern city of Rio Thursday and was carrying 201 passengers and 12 crew members including three pilots, had been diverted according to guidelines.

She said a technical investigation was under way to determine what happened, and added that passengers had been transferred to other flights headed for Paris.

The aircraft, an Airbus A330, was the same model as the Air France airliner that plunged into the Atlantic in 2009 and killed all 228 people aboard during a Rio to Paris flight.

In a July report, French accident investigators concluded that technical faults led an ill-prepared crew to lose control, resulting in the airliner's crash.
